Comedian Jim Gaffigan is a father of five, self-described fat and in love with food. You may recognize Gaffigan as a recent contributor to CBS Sunday Morning. The only way to take in Food: A Love Story is by audio so you can pick up on all of the voices, sarcasm, and nuances that only a comedian can deliver.
Gaffigan has Midwestern roots and in many ways this has informed his love of food. He provides hilarious observations from traveling around the country as he examines America’s, often unhealthy, relationship with food. The book starts with an examination of regional food. Spoiler alert: The Midwest is the home of Super Bowl Sunday food (pizza, bratwurst, and wings).
He also provides a funny examination of fast food, dessert (especially funny observations on cake), and breakfast food. Gaffigan is unashamed, for the most part, about his food habits. You’ll find yourself laughing out loud and thinking "that is so true."
